I am a native Ukrainian and Russian translator and interpreter currently based in Vancouver, Canada.

Since 2008, I have mostly worked as an in-house translator and interpreter for various companies and projects based in Kyiv, Ukraine. I also worked as a freelancer for almost a year in 2012-2013.

I moved to Canada in 2018 and after a brief pause in my translation activity during which I was exploring alternative career options, I came to the conclusion that continuing my development as a translation professional is what I am most drawn to.

Most recently, I was engaged as a full-time translator and interpreter in a Twinning Project dedicated to food safety and animal welfare aimed at assisting the Government of Ukraine to achieve the approximation and harmonization of sanitary and phytosanitary measures with the EU standards and the implementation and enforcement of the legal basis in order to open up greater opportunities for Ukrainian producers of food and agricultural products to trade with the EU. Overall, I translated over 1,000 pages for this project.

Having worked as an in-house legal translator for almost two years, I have gained extensive knowledge in the following legal practice areas:

  • Banking & Finance;
  • Corporate/Mergers & Acquisitions;
  • Dispute Resolution;
  • Intellectual Property;
  • Pharmaceuticals & Healthcare;
  • Real Estate & Construction;
  • Restructuring & Insolvency;
  • Securities & Capital Markets;
  • Tax & Customs. 

I have also worked as an interpreter and translator for the OSCE Special Monitoring Mission to Ukraine and for the UEFA Euro 2012 Local Organizing Committee in Kyiv, Ukraine.

I provide both consecutive and simultaneous interpreting services and greatly enjoy interpreting and the challenges it entails. My experience includes interpreting at:

  • Meetings of the Working Group on Military and Security Issues and the Trilateral Contact Group in Minsk, Belarus (Minsk Protocol);
  • Seminars and training sessions;
  • Ceremonies and special events;
  • Meetings and video conferences with representatives of various government agencies and high-profile officials;
  • Press conferences and interviews (including on live TV).

As I am currently expanding my customer base, I am offering

*** free sample translations (up to 200 words) or small jobs to start off our cooperation. My rates are also negotiable; I will consider a lower rate for a limited number of words/period that we agree upon. Please email me to discuss details. ***
